Friday's Fancies #40: March Madness


Spring has officially arrived and I couldn't be happier about the sunny and still warmer days. I love the fact that it's the sunshine, and not the alarm clock, that wakes us up in the morning. My winter coats and boots are already stuffed safely under the bed, waiting for their next chance to make an appearance. But I've already moved on to the spring and summer mood, and my outfits reflect that perfectly. I'm all about bright colors (like my favorite hot pink pleated skirt), breezy materials, sky-high heels for nights out and embellished ballet flats for day. For my 40th participation in Friday's Fancies I've put together a bold and colorful outfit I'd be happy to sport on a date or on a night on the town with my girlfriends. And how fabulous and glamorous are those Miu Miu heels? Even if they're far beyond my usual price range, I'm still going to dream about adding them to my shoe collection. After all, isn't the spring about new beginnings and big dreams?
